Learn how to Stand in Mountain, Grow a Tree and do a Downward Facing Dog. If you’ve ever thought about starting a yoga practice or you’ve been wanting to roll out your yoga mat and step back on it, but going to a yoga class feels like you’ve shown up in a foreign country without a map or a translator... this class has been designed for you!
In this class you will learn the fundamentals and the foundational postures of yoga, learning how to flow from one pose to another as you learn the Sun Salutation, a yoga sequence practiced by yogi’s all over the world. Along the way you will learn the asana (pose) names in both English and Sanskrit and develop an understanding of cues often heard in studio classes, with a nod to those that sound strange ("pull your naval to your spine" and “root down to rise up”).
Yoga is a relaxant. Yoga heightens awareness, cultivates patience, and balances the body-mind connection. Yoga improves strength, musculoskeletal fitness, and flexibility. Learning the basics sets you on the path to a lifelong yoga practice. All you need to do is show up, roll out your mat and practice.
